Give the gift of activist game nights!
- Space Cats Fight Fascism is purrrfect for just about any person who likes games and wants to fight for a better world (or galaxy). Bonus points if they’re super into cats.
- Co-opoly: The Game of Cooperatives is great for people looking for family friendly game nights!
- STRIKE! The Game of Worker Rebellion is the game by, for, and about the labor movement. Any union organizer or labor advocate would love it.
- Community Garden is our newest game (and one of my favorites that we’ve put out). It’s a wonderful gift for anyone imagining warmer, sunnier days planting veggies and cultivating community.
- Rise Up: The Game of People & Power is a fun story-telling board game with two versions in the box: one for game nights and the other for workshops or kids.
You can also snag our Games Bundle – which comes with three games!
Stocking stuffers for rabble rousers
- Beautiful Trouble: A Strategy Card Deck has five mini-games in one box, and can double as a study guide on activism and advocacy.
- Loud & Proud: A Social Justice Word Game is the gift for someone who wants a simple card game that’s fun, thought provoking, and encourages you to be loud.
T-shirts for the stylist change makers
- Raised Paw and Hiss Truth To Power are our two popular Space Cats themed t-shirts.
- Power to the Meeple is for the person who falls into the center of the board gamer/social justice nerd venn diagram.
- Co-ops Rock! is for that gift getter that loves cooperatives and cooperation.
- And introducing our I’d Rather Be Gardening T-Shirt and Tote Bag, a match for any Community Garden gift!
Puzzles for the introspective advocates
- Our Rise Up board game also features beautiful illustrations; and we thought the Art is A Hammer piece particularly made an inspiring puzzle.
- Our Towards a Sustainable Future puzzle is perfect for those that want to sit back, relax, and imagine a more sustainable world.
For parents raising good trouble makers
- As a parent, I thought the Hiss Truth to Power shirt was too cute not to make into a kids’ size as well.
- No matter your age, you’re never too young to declare This Is What A Feminist Looks Like!
A gift card for the self-determined
Sometimes, knowing what the activists and change-makers in our lives want is hard to pin down (and that’s one of the things that makes them special). Now, you can get them a gift card so they can choose their favorite games, apparel, or puzzles in our store.
